Gogglebox viewers fuming at Ellie and Izzi’s ‘horrible’ treatment of their dog during baked beans blunder


GOGGLEBOX fans slammed sofa star Ellie Warner for her “horrible treatment” of her pet dog after she spilt baked beans on her lap.

The TV personality has been forced to defend herself on social media after facing backlash for appearing to “swat” her pooch out of the way.

The shock scene aired in last night’s episode of the Channel 4 show, with Gogglebox’s official Twitter account also tweeting a clip.

In the footage, Ellie and her sister Izzi can be seen tucking into a KFC when the blonde telly addict spills her beans.

The family’s six-month-old Italian Greyhound, Mick, is sitting on a nearby stool and viewers were horrified when Ellie was seen using her arm to seemingly push the pup while she got up to clean the mess.

With Izzi picking up Ellie’s plate, the star shouts: “I don’t care, it’s burning me!”

Taking to Twitter, fans criticised the way that Ellie treated Mick, with one writing: “This has made me go right off this pair! Some people just don’t deserve dogs!”

Another added: “Not a nice way to push that poor puppy. It’s your own fault!”

A third said: “These two need to grow up and treat that dog with respect. They don’t deserve this beautiful animal.”

One fan seethed: “Way too rough with that puppy. Doesn’t deserve a dog. Not the dog’s fault.”


Taking to the Twitter account that she shares with her sister, Ellie hit back at the haters.

She wrote: “Sorry everyone, was scolded by burning hot beans, the foot stool is literally a foot from the floor so Mick was not hurt.

“I love my dog and would never hurt him, and I also would not let him eat Kentucky Fried Chicken as it is not suitable food for dogs.”
